The fragrance of early fall...Robertson County Tennessee Tabacco Barn

There is no greater ghost story in the history of American than that of the Bell Witch of Tennessee. It would require an entirely separate book to chronicle the strange haunting that occurred in Robertson County between 1817 and 1821 (and I have written one -- see my book Season of the Witch for the complete account) but in short, the family of a local farmer named John Bell was plagued by a mysterious and violent spirit for nearly four years. The haunting involved spectral creatures…

The Bell Witch house. In 1817, John Bell and his family were tormented by, who many believed, the spirit of Kate Batts. She was a spiteful old woman who believed that she had been cheated in a land purchase by John Bell, and on her deathbed she vowed to haunt him and his family. Kate's wrath was mainly directed at John and his favorite daughter, Betsy. With the wife and other children she was sometimes heard crooning softly, saying something pleasant, or just ignoring them completely.

Hah, I've been her many years ago. The Belle Mead Train Station.-- Located in Belle Mead, NJ. The site once housed a train station that was built in the late 1800's. The original station was razed in in February of 1940 & a new train station was built in its place. The 1940's station is what exists presently, in its abandoned state along the railroad tracks.
